Sergio Romero is now training alone at Manchester United, as he seeks an exit in the mid-season window.
Manchester United have been superb when it comes to choosing their goalkeepers. The Red Devils deserve immense credit for that. From David de Gea to Dean Henderson, the Old Trafford club probably have the best first-choice and back-up combo in the business.
Then you have Sergio Romero. The Argentine has been a brilliant servant for the 20-time Premier League champions, which is why it hurt so much when the club decided to treat him so poorly.
It now feels like a relationship that’s gone beyond repair. That’s extremely upsetting for a player who gave his absolute all for Manchester United Football Club.
Things are so far gone that the United first-team outcast is now training alone, The Sun report. He’s now hoping for a January exit on a free transfer, as Romero looks to end his misery as the Red Devils’ unwanted keeper.
You see, United wouldn’t find themselves in this dreadful situation if they’d not let their own greed get in the way. Pricing Romero out of a deadline day move to Everton means the Argentine is now collecting his hefty wages from United, while not being in contention for the first-team. Now, it’s looking likely that he’ll walk away for free – either in January or next summer.
It just feels very fitting for the way the club is being run at the moment. Things, at board-level, seem completely messy, while United of ten years ago certainly wouldn’t be treating a key squad player so poorly.
At the end of the day, it’s Romero whom you feel most sorry for. He’s being kept at Old Trafford against his wishes, while there was an easy solution to let him go to Everton and play regular football.
